Having Issues With Google Chrome?

If you are experiencing issues with Google Chrome, such as frequent crashes, unexpected ads, unusual start pages or a toolbar mysteriously appears; then, you may want to download the Chrome Cleanup Tool. Simply download to your desktop (or a folder) AND run… This tool is made by Google to help track down issues with the Google Chrome browser. One important point to make here is that this tool will give you an option to set your browser settings to the default (original) settings; so, be aware of that.

Save Webpages To Google

Google recently came out with a Google Chrome Extension called Google Save that gives you another way to bookmark webpages and images (similar to Pocket). I have been playing around with Google Save for approximately a month now and I am already seeing some improvements.  After you install the extension you will see a star type icon. If you want to save a webpage for later viewing simply click the star.  You can also use tags to categorize and organize the pages you save. To get to your saved pages, simply go to google.com/save …

Checker Plus for Google Calendar – Another Google Chrome Browser Extension Gem

I just posted an article about Checker Plus for Gmail and while at the developer’s site I noticed he had developed another Google Chrome browser extension called Checker Plus for Google Calendar.

Again, this is another extension by this developer that is carrying a very high user base rating. I am a big time user of Google Calendar and this extension makes it so that you can do any and all your calendaring activitiies easily from the Chrome Browser. If you want more details, information and support for Checker Plus for Google Calendar, I encourage you to visit the developer’s site — CLICK HERE 

Check Plus for Google Calendar

Again, as I did in the article about Checker Plus for Gmail, below you will find a video about Checker Plus for Google Calendar; AND, the highlights and features (verbatim as reflected on the developer’s site).

Enjoy! Great piece of work on something that I find to be very useful.

100 times more powerful than the “by Google” extension and with desktop and voice notifications and great reviews

  • Trusted developer of many extensions – more than one million satisfied users worldwide
  • Lots of features, options and updates – just read the version changes in the logs below
  • Personal tech support from the developer – very fast response times, 5-30 minutes

Improve your productivity and your business with new features like this…

  • Add events quickly with multiple ways…Click on a day in the popup calendar or just type it into the quick add ex. Lunch with Mom 11am Sunday

    Select the text on any page like “…dinner Aug 26th at 3:30pm…” and right click to add it automatically for that date!

    Right click a webpage and add it instantly to your calendar for tomorrow or any day or time! Try it in Gmail ex. a friend emails you to play soccer tomorrow, reply to them, then right click and save it to your calendar. Screenshot: http://bit.ly/o1Qxu4. You can also use the popup calendar see video:http://youtu.be/hrrZa2egQDc

    Use Chrome’s address bar (Omnibox) to add an event by simply typing “cal” and then tab or space and your event title with the time or date – See screenshot: http://bit.ly/pmeFCU or video: http://youtu.be/owtEUtueXp4

    When viewing a Facebook event page the popup gives you the choice to add it to your calendar

  • Desktop notifications “like Outlook” when your event occurs that you can snooze and with optional voice notification: Add a cooking timer that yells out “take out pizza!” See video: http://youtu.be/kimuIJ7re8o

  • Supports multiple calendars and Google Apps™ (for Business or Education) and hosted
  • Option to run in background even when Google Chrome is closed
  • Popup a calendar for the month, week, agenda view when clicking on the icon or customize your own view!
  • Show the current date or day or time until your next event and preview details of your future ones right on the icon
  • Lots of options that you can customize, most are free (95%) and the rest is upon donations of any amount because I’ve added those features by special requests
  • Get reminders of your contacts’ birthdays and events
  • Drag and drop events to reschedule them in the month view
  • Can also be used as a widget for the extension “Awesome New Tab Page” (ANTP)
  • Notification of events even when there is no internet connection with offline mode

Get The NEW Chrome Bookmark Manager Extension (by Google)

You can make the Google Chrome Bookmarks and the Bookmarks manager more powerful by incorporating the intelligence of Google Search with a NEW modern user interface (called Bookmark Manager). This extension is a “must have” extension… You will especially like the “auto folders” feature that will automatically categorize your bookmarks for you. I never cared much for bookmark managers built into browsers, but this one has me thinking differently.

Google Chrome Bookmark Manager

Here is what you get with this extension:

One-click save: When you bookmark, you can now save an image and note to make your bookmarks more helpful. Also, Google will suggest a folder if it seems like it could be a fit.

Improved search: Quickly find that elusive page with search powered by Google, which looks not only at the bookmark title and snippet, but also the bookmarked page’s content.

Collect bookmarks by topic: Your bookmarks will automatically be organized by topic, like “Tokyo” and “Photography.” If you’d rather, you can still organize them into folders yourself.

Familiar bookmarks, new look: Your existing bookmarks will automatically get updated with images and descriptions, wherever possible.

Share: Have a folder of favorite bookmarks? You can make it public and share the link with whomever you’d like to access it. Everything else will remain private.

Access your bookmarks anywhere: Bookmarked an article on your phone to finish reading on your laptop? Chrome will continue to sync your bookmarks across all of your devices, just like it does today.
